A Study of Drive Shaft Assembly
Keywords:ANSYS, CATIA, E-GLASS, E-CARBON, Kevlar.
The weight reduction of the driveshaft can have a certain role in the general weight reduction of the vehicle and is a highly desirable destination. Substituting composite structures for conventional metallic structures has many advantages because of higher specific stiffness and durability of composite materials. The advanced composite materials such as graphite, carbon, Kevlar and Glass with suitable resins are widely practiced because of their high specific strength and high specific modulus. Advanced composite materials seem ideally suited for long, power driver shaft applications. The automotive industry is exploiting composite material technology for structural component construction in order to obtain the reduction of the weight without a reduction in vehicle quality and dependability. It is known that energy conservation is one of the most important objectives in vehicle design and reduction of weight is one of the most efficient steps to get this effect. In reality, on that point is about a direct proportion between the weight of a vehicle and its fuel use, especially in city driving. This task is an analysis performed on drive shaft with different composite materials and concludes that the utilization of composite materials for drive shaft would induce less amount of stress which additionally reduces the weight of the vehicle. CATIA is the modelling package used to model the drive shaft arrangement and ANSYS is the analysis package used to carry out analysis.
